Momiji (Japanese Maple) is very Japanese. Well, this is just my opinion, but it just seems like a very Japanese plant.
Anyways, last weekend I was surrounded by Momiji. The sign above says 'Momiji Bridge,' which is a bridge located near Lake Sayama.
It's called Momiji Bridge because there are so many Momiji trees growing around the bridge. The green Momiji are very pretty and delicate. But they will probably be even more beautiful in the fall when they turn red.
If you look closely you will see the Momiji design on the bridge. The green behind it is the real Momiji.
